North Shore MA
SAIL BEYOND CANCER is the new name for our Chapter in Salem, Massachusetts located at the Safe Harbor Hawthorne Cove Marina on 10 White Street, Salem, MA.
Sail Beyond Cancer North Shore started as a second location of Healing Winds VT under the name Healing Winds North Shore. When we landed in the salty waters of Salem Harbor in July 2018, we were welcomed by the Dock Master and nestled in to spread the word of our services of providing free therapeutic sails for those who are battling cancer.
We quickly became members of the Salem Chamber of Commerce and began holding informational gatherings at Safe Harbor Hawthorne Cover Marina. Within three short weeks, we garnered 40+ volunteers, completed eight mission sails, and attended several area events to spread the word of our mission.
You or anyone can refer someone who is going through the challenge of Cancer - anyone of any age and any type of cancer! Each referral is encouraged to bring up to eight people to join them on their free 3-hour sail.
We are always looking for great volunteers who would like to make a difference in people’s lives through our special non profit. We have opportunities to get involved in many areas including: being a volunteer Captain or Crew as well community outreach, administration, and fundraising!
We encourage YOU to ‘come aboard’ by filling out the volunteer form by clicking the button below.
We will contact you shortly thereafter.
If you are interested in forming a partnership or would like to brainstorm ideas on how to collaborate, please email our Executive Director Suzanne Snyder Johnson.
Our organization relies 100% on our amazing volunteers and community. We survive on the generous support of our individual donors, family foundations and corporate grants. We are a registered 5013 with the IRS.
Thank YOU for your interest and support.
We encourage YOU to help make a difference by giving someone in our community a ‘Cancer Free Day’ while sailing the waters of Salem Sound!
